| Keep in mind that those 100 level courses you take in any college are little commercials for the rest of the curriuclum. We were told we would do so much with the sociology degree because it studied the structure of organizations with a promise to learn even more next year. However, we repeated the same material again and again and there wasn't much to learn. A professor once advised that "degreed status" will get one in to any field. The truth is that this status does nothing when employers openly ask, "What can you do for me?" looking for that hard skill that was supposed to be developed. |
The professors weren't organized, they used the same textbooks. While we are endlessly studying Freud Marx and Weber, many in other schools were actually learning how to do something. This program just brought me more debt. The placement department stated it best to me, "We just don't place sociology majors!" It was explained that the liberal arts programs at OU might study they what, when, where but not the how; that was for the grad school. Then they started their pitch for the grad school. Once they got their money, the didn't care whether or not I was employed. They promised a great deal and they failed miserably.

| School is not supportive in anything. Will have you take unnecessary courses, especially if you're a transferred student. Don't depend on help from an Academic Advisor(s), or from the Student of Dean Office. Nobody no exactly what they are doing in their supposedly respectable field. Student of Dean Office will not support you in any manner. They will always choose the side of the faculty (department) regardless if you're right and can prove they are wrong. They will have you crying for no reasons. The Dean and Assistant Dean is very arrogant and will most definitely look down on you. Very much as uncle and auntie toms. |
Financial Aide office is a total joke, and will not have your information process on time. You have to demand for your aide to process, so you can purchases the necessary materials for all courses.
School course materials are very high on-campus. Suggest that you attend the bookstore off-campus, much better in prices and a friendly atmosphere.
Don't go to Oakland University, they will screw you in every way, and when you think its graduation time it is truly not, because they will find someone of making you have to take an extra courses, and go further into debt.Be very careful before choosing this school. Always look for the best education possible if you are expecting an excellent education.
